Most of the works were very in-tune to the landscape that they almost blend right in.
Hang on, the last one is the environment! Amazing what nature can do on its own.
Other sculptures made great use of the elements, whether water, earth or wind.
Late Spring finally produced some warm weather – just in time for a visit to the 2017 version of Sculpture by the Sea. I started at the Tamarama end, and there was some rough surf about.
It didn’t matter too much here as much of the work was on the beach. Literally. These works I think took advantage of their settings.
One last turn around the Chinoiserie garden – we come upon a dovecote.
A Chinese pavilion by a pond with golden carp.
Beside the pond was a cherry tree that was just beginning to blossom.
And a sure sign that Spring was on its way – daffodils.
It was an end-of-winter garden that we saw at Chinoiserie.
The peonies don’t reach their peak until November, but there was one flower out for us to see.
The rosellas were busy feeding in the early morning.
And these yellow flowers provided a much needed lift of colour.
